    We absolutely LOVED having our wedding reception at the Adobe Lodge! It was such a beautiful venue! We had our meal outside on the lawn against the backdrop of the sunset, roses, and a multitude of flowers. When it got dark, we moved into the lodge for cake and dancing! Leslie was so professional and did such a wonderful job helping us to plan our wedding. The appetizers/cocktail hour was wonderful; the tables were beautifully decorated with elegant dinnerware; and the meal was delicious! She also made sure her team put all of our wedding favors at each place setting; she took care of special meal requests by our guests; and she even had a kids' room in the lodge where our smaller guests could watch movies and draw. Leslie also organized a pre-wedding sample meal so we could taste different appetizers, main courses, and wines before deciding on what we wanted.

    Leslie worked with each of our vendors--cake, flowers, DJ, photographer--and made sure each had everything they needed to make our day so special! We highly recommend Leslie and the Adobe Lodge!

    I contacted Leslie Panion 1 1/2 years in advance to book my reception at the Adobe Lodge. She was easy to contact and she was always prompt with her responses. We decided on having our wedding inside the lodge with access to the patio for cocktails. We decided on an open bar and brought some of our own alcohol as well. The cost was added on to our package on top of the base bar pricing.

    The food was arranged buffet style. They had meals for the children and all the aldults could go up for seconds and thirds. Only one issue with the food, they didn't let the parents know ahead of time, and so many parents picked food up from the buffet for their children. So we ended up having some waste due to the kids not eating some of their extra food.

    They did a great job with the set up. Normally the adobe, looks kind of blah on the interior. But after they set up the tables with linens and place settings it looked fantastic.

    One of my friends had a wedding at the Adobe exactly one month after mine. Hers was outdoors. They also did an exceptional job on her wedding. The food was great and the decor was well put together. It was just a little cold when it got dark.

    I cannot say enough about Leslie and her team. She took care of everything for me! It was an all-inclusive for reception site and catering. The food was amazing. So flexible, we had tons of last minute cancelations, and they ended up dropping some of the cost even though it was not in the contract to do so. We ended up having to plan for rain, and they rented the tents and took care of it all. So stress free!!
